Age Range: 11 and up (approximately, with parental supervision)
The Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics of Canada sponsors this website that offers free educational resources for young people to convey the wonder and mystery of the universe and the power of theoretical physics including: Condensed Matter, Cosmology & Gravitation, Particle Physics, Quantum Physics, Superstring Theory, and more
When you get to the website you’ll see a menu of educational resources that includes:
*ALICE & BOB IN WONDERLAND – Join your animated hosts, Alice & Bob, in this series of 60-second video adventures as they learn about the world around us from discovering how a flashlight works to learning about gravity and time-travel.
*CHALLENGE OF QUANTUM REALITY – Explore the quantum world in a 30 minute video featuring the double-slit experiment and the concept of wave-particle duality.
*EVERYDAY EINSTEIN: GPS & RELATIVITY – Find out what Einstein and the Global Positioning System have in common.
*MEET A SCIENTIST – Watch short video interviews with leading researchers from around the world.
*MYSTERY OF DARK MATTER – Explore the mysterious substance that makes up about 90% of the mass of every galaxy in the universe.
*THE PHYSICS OF INNOVATION – Watch an inspirational video that explains how the technology we enjoy today is powered by the four key scientific concepts of quantum mechanics, electromagnetism, special relativity, and general relativity.
*POWER OF IDEAS – Explore the six most powerful ideas in physics history through this multimedia experience
*VIRTUAL ISSYP – Learn more about the wonders of modern physics and the excitement of research and discovery by watching video excerpts from the Perimeter Institute’s two-week International Summer School for Young Physicists (ISSYP).
These remarkable presentations are certain to inspire your inner Einstein.
